||Gubbio (the x up in the right) is famous for "La Festa dei Ceri". The mainplace is
upon the construction we see.
Here we are upon the piazza and in front we see "Il Palazzo del Capitano". The door is marvellous.
There is no need to say anything about Orvieto. But this nice lake in the
northwest is not that easy to find.
Orvieto is built upon a great rock. "Le mura" (the walls of the city in Italian) are placed upon it and sometimes it is
difficult to see what is the rock and what is the wall.
A dome known to all the world.
I took these fotos in 1988 when I stayed for a month at Perugia and partecipated in a course for the Italian language at
the "Università Italiana per gli Stranieri". It was really a great time. We had from 4 to 6 hours of
lessons a day and the rest of the day was free. As I took this course rather seriously as preparation for living in Italy,
I studied a little bit more than the young students, but had still a lot of free time.
During the weekends we went around in the country, visiting famous and also unkown places. There
are many more fotos but I put here some of which I think, that they aren't like those which we can see in every book
